Final call for papers: EXPERIENCING LIGHT 2012
Second international conference on the effects of light on wellbeing
12-13 November 2012, Eindhoven, The Netherlands
Light is essential for human beings. Not only does light allow us to see, it affects our mood, health, and productivity, while shaping deeply the way we experience our surroundings. Because light is ubiquitously present in our environment, it has great potential to influence the way we feel, think, and act, and therefore deserves attention in research across disciplines.
EXPERIENCING LIGHT 2012 is an international two-day scientific conference for people interested in the effects of light and light design on human wellbeing. It approaches wellbeing in its broadest sense, including mood, emotions, subjective and objective health, comfort, atmosphere perception, productivity, and performance.
EXPERIENCING LIGHT 2012 follows the successful Experiencing Light conference in 2009, and focusses on the psychological processes related to the perception of and exposure to both natural and artificial lighting. The goal is to bring together a multidisciplinary group of researchers and designers working in this domain so they can meet, share experiences, present research, and exchange ideas.
The abstract submission deadline for Experiencing Light has been extended to May 1st, 2012.
